They certainly can't fuck it up any further than their actual human drivers do.
One of the advantages of a self driving vehicle, besides the obvious improvement in safety, is efficiency. Everything they do can be programmed to use the most efficient/energy saving method possible.
Whether it's accelerating, stop and go traffic, braking or UPS left turns.
I see this saving the USPS meelions of ducats.

In this case, I only ask two things:

1. That they actually deliver the mail to the correct address. My "neighbor" five miles away and I shouldn't have to have "mail swap" days twice a week because the apparently illiterate human driver can't do their fucking job.

2. That they deliver packages in a timely fashion. When I track a package and it tells me that it is at the local post office, on a Tuesday, it shouldn't take until fucking Friday to get that package.

OK, wait, make that three things:

3. When they do deem in their magnanimity to deliver a package, that they don't just chuck it as hard as they can on to the front yard...when it is raining. We have a lovely covered, wraparound porch that is a five second walk from the driveway they pull up in. Surely such packages could be placed there out of inclement weather? Apparently, that's just a bridge too fucking far for the USPS. I guess I should feel lucky that they deign to even get in their vehicle in the morning.

RIP Niki Lauda. An absolutely phenomenal driver with an amazingly honest personality. Who else would tell Enzo Ferrari that his cars were shit?

Rush is an phenomenal film, even if you're not in to the sport. Daniel Bruhl absolutely nails Lauda, even down to his mannerisms.

To be honest I hope China completely and violently retaliates for this. This isn't a trade war, that is literally a declaration of war. Especially since the orange hamster hasn't produced a single proof.

I hope they do not. I would prefer not being recalled to active duty at my age.

Adware is malware. There are far, far too many incidents of ad networks being compromised with malicious ads for me to ever treat adware as anything less than malware. No matter how much I like a site, or even the owner, ads will never be served in my browser (plus, of course scripting protection and Java can fuck right off). I'm more than happy to support the site in other ways either via Patreon or merch.

Glad to see Rage 2 here. It's an open world shooter for people like me who hate open world and love DOOM gunplay.

Minus the ridiculous, and at times game breaking, bugs yes.

Unfortunately, the US currently has little room to scold anyone about having incompetence at the higher levels of government...

And that has absolutely no bearing on the content of the show.

I have to agree with you, Blue. I was not aware of the nearly global catastrophic events that could have unfolded had the right people not fought against the incompetence of their superiors and took the actions they did to contain the radiation.

The scene in the helicopter with Jarred Harris and Stellan Skaarsgard is a perfect example of how incompetent and blame averse the higher ups in the Communist part were.

It is an amazing show and one I would highly recommend to anyone.

Since this game will be, what, two years late by their new projected release date, I expect it will be cancelled.

Fuck, the only Ubi game I have been genuinely looking forward to in a long time.

On a side note; they were both headed to Wakefield's anti-vaccine party.

If the guy in the Civic had shot the guy that was in the HHR who was beating on his car, he'd have a pretty good Castle Doctrine defense. Especially in light of the video showing the HHR guy wailing on his car.

Spinning the HHR guy around, though, well...that was a bit unnecessary. Funny, though.

We suck at merging in Texas. I have to go through a merge every day and no one seems to understand the zipper concept of two lanes merging. Easily 33% of my commute is spent at that merge.

Yup. Having a blast with it. It's like the best parts of Mad Max and Doom fused together. Denuvo doesn't bother me because the game performs well and the only gun locked behind anything is the BFG 9000 which isn't part of the game's canon anyway so it's not game breaking or important.

Played it for a couple of hours last night and had a really good time. Combat mechanics are smooth and fun. The open world isn't stupidly stuffed full of pointless shit (looking at you AC here) but it is varied enough to not become a chore to drive around. It is certainly more populated and alive than Mad Max, which I consider Avalanche's best open world game to date.

The colors don't bother me in the slightest because I paid attention to all the trailers that were released prior to the game's release. It's post-apocalyptic in a batshit crazy environment and it lives up to that.

I dig it and that's all that matters to me.

Also, it runs crazy good on my 1660Ti at 1080p with everything maxed.
